Victoria has been a much-loved member of our customer care team for several years. As well as being a qualified counsellor and CBT therapist, Victoria has undergone extensive training with Compassion Understood on how to help people come to terms with the loss of a pet. She is also trained in trauma counselling and can be a great support to you.
We all know and love Victoria for being the compassionate, sincere and caring person that she is. You can talk to Victoria about how you are feeling in person at our Bromsgrove practice, over the phone or by email if you would prefer.
Dedicated bereavement & support room
We have a dedicated room away from our main waiting area so that you can talk to Victoria in private in a relaxing environment, as well as a number of other comfortable spaces we can provide to you.
With her knowledge of pet health and treatments, Victoria is ideally placed to support you through this difficult time and we encourage you to talk to her about how you are feeling.
When our pets suffer a trauma or become very ill, it can be almost as upsetting as losing them, sometimes more so. Feelings of hopelessness, anger and guilt are very common.
Accidents happen every day and pets can become sick for a variety of reasons. Even if the pet makes a full recovery, negative feelings can sometimes linger, even though the trauma or illness was no-one’s fault.
Talking about how you are feeling can really help you come to terms with what has happened and what needs to happen next, whatever that may be. It can also be a huge comfort just to start talking to someone.
If your pet has been suffering from ill health or has experienced a trauma, making the decision to give your pet a peaceful goodbye and end any suffering they may have been going through, is often the kindest and bravest thing you can do for them.
Some people find it helpful to prepare well in advance of needing end of life care for their pet so that when the time comes, they are better equipped to go through the experience and don’t have to deal with the difficult decisions on the day.
Victoria can talk you through everything that will happen, explain what options you have and provide comfort and support for you and your family with this sensitive subject.
Choosing ahead of time where you wish your pet’s end of life care to take place and what you would like to happen afterwards can free your mind from such worries and allow you to be wholly there for your pet on the day.
Losing a pet suddenly can rock your world whatever their age or the situation. You can be affected by shock and grief in many different ways. Whether you can’t stop crying or can’t cry at all, whether you are angry or feel hopeless, the important thing is to start dealing with your feelings as soon as possible.
Book an appointment with Victoria and let her help you start to unravel your thought process, or if you aren’t ready to talk, write down how you feel in an email to her. The important thing is to start somewhere.
Pet loss affects everyone differently. Bereavement counselling with Victoria is a complimentary service for our clients and their family members who may be struggling to cope with the loss or impending loss of a pet.
Excellent vets. Been going there for years and they always look after my animals brilliantly. Their prices are very fair as well. I recommend them to everyone who will listen!Becky Winmill, Facebook
We love Clent Hills Vets because we have a range of animals that they always take the time and effort to check on. They are always very friendly and helpful and do a great job.Carl, Facebook
Before we got our dogs I visited all the local vets and these guys were the only ones to give me really good advice and lots of information. So glad we chose them, I know whenever my fur babies need anything they are in the safest a of hands.N Hayhurst, Vet Help DIrect
Thank you so much to all the wonderful staff at Clent Hills Vets who have been fantastic with my Guinea Pig Martha over the last few weeks. Not only that but they have been very reassuring and not once dismissed my worry over her. She’s back home today after a procedure to flush her bladder and is currently munching away on her hay so is doing really well. See you all again in a few days for her post op checkup!Gemma Mallett, Facebook
We visited today for the first time, I can see why they are voted the best in Bromsgrove ! Lovely clean fresh facility, great idea to not only have a cat’s corner, but a cat only clinic! Barbara our vet was very compassionate, kind and genuine! Guinness loved her which means a lot to me as the last couple of times we have been to a vet’s my poor Guinn couldn’t stop shaking!! Lovely helpful Staff, very very clean premises and a lot cheaper than my previous place!!Katie W, Best of Bromsgrove
Took my dog on a long journey to Cornwall recently. Called Clent Hills to take advice on the journey and how to keep my dog calm etc – they were fantastic. Had lots of great advice and were very supportive. We all had a great time!Laura U, Best of Bromsgrove
Very sympathetic and knowledgeable.Satisfied Customer
Saved my little dog’s life.
There is not enough thanks that can be given to Jo the vet, the surgeon who operated and to all the nurses who cared for Lily overnight after suffering with a Pyometra.
You are all stars!Kirsty Halldearn, Facebook
